We saw people tying gold teeth. They often smile and show gold teeth that we have gold teeth for luxury. But never heard of the Golden Tongue. Scientists have discovered that a mummy with a golden tongue is now in Egypt. Can you keep that tongue and eat it? Why was the Golden Tongue established? We know a little bit about its background story.
The golden tongue? How?
Archaeologists have unearthed a 2,000-year-old mummy in Egypt at the site of the ancient Egyptian site Taposiris magna. A golden tongue was found in it. This mummy dug a hole with a golden tongue. This is because at the time of burial / mummy burial of the dead, people at that time believed that they would go to another world to live in disease and life, and they must have lived according to this mummification and its background customs. Mummy is buried with a golden tongue in the hope of helping the dead to speak in the afterlife. Mummy processors think the tongue may have been cut from the body and kept with a golden tongue.
The golden tongue to speak to God after death?
In a statement issued on January 29 by researchers at the Egyptian Ministry of Archeology, the mummy may have embossed a golden tongue to ensure that the deceased could speak in the afterlife.
For example, in the afterlife, if the mummy with the golden tongue had met Osiris, the god of the underworld, they would have been able to talk to God, the statement said. It is not clear if Mummy had a speech impediment while they were alive. It is also not clear why the artificial tongue was made of gold.
Gold coins on Cleopatra’s (mummy) face
Archaeologists led by Kathleen Martinez of the Dominican Republic found the mummy on one of the 16 burial mounds at Tabosiris Magna, home to temples dedicated to Osiris and Isis, Osiris’ wife and sister. Earlier, archaeologists found coins adorned on the face of Cleopatra VII, claiming to have been used in temples during the reign of the queen.
Later a few more mummies were found.
The other 15 cemeteries found are about 2,000 years old. In one, a female mummy wears a helmet while smiling wearing a death mask that covers most of her body.
Horned crown mummies
Two mummies were found with the remains of scrolls, which are currently being analyzed and understood by scholars. The report also states that one of the mummies had a layered or cardboard box attached to Osiris’ gold jewelry.
In the report, Kathleen Martinez, a leading archaeologist at the University of Santo Domingo, said the two main mummies found at the site were wrapped in layers of gilded cartonage or linen or papyrus. One of the mummies revealed gold ornaments depicting Osiris, while the other wore a horned crown, a serpent attached to its band, and a necklace with a falcon, the symbol of the god Horus. Researchers also found the remains of ancient scrolls buried with mummies.
Statues of those buried during the Ptolemaic period
Researchers also found several statues depicting people buried on the site; The statues are very well preserved. That statement says you can still create personal hairstyles and helmets. The statues give the look a formal look without a smile on the face. These are all individuals. Although archaeologists do not know when they died, they can say that they lived during the time of the Egyptian Ptolemy (304 BC to 30 BC).

Burial was in the PC of one of Alexander the Great Generals. It may have been ruled by the Roman Empire, which conquered the country after the death of Cleopatra VII in 30 CE
Archaeologists from Egypt and the University of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic are conducting excavations at Taposiris Magna. It is headed by Kathleen Martinez, an archaeologist in the Dominican Republic. The site is being excavated and the remaining analysis is underway.
New information! Gold scales
Researchers from the twin Egyptian-Dominican missions have unearthed a gold-tongued mummy and examined 16 poorly preserved cemeteries carved in rock-cut crypt. This was a popular intervention in the Greco-Roman period in Egypt. According to a report by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Archeology, a tongue-shaped amulet made of gold foil may have been placed in the deceased’s mouth. (Researchers at the National Museum of Alexandria are currently studying two such gold foil amulets and eight gold scales representing an evening leaf, reports the Egyptian Independent Al Masri al-Yum.)
The study was published in the journal Live Science.
